Wolverine grapplers, returning
home after placing second to Indiana
in the Conference wrestling cham-
pionships over the weekend, unani-
mously elected Dick Kopel captain
for the 1944 season just a few hours
before he left for home and service
in the Army.
Kopel is the new Big Ten Champ
in the 121-pound class, and in addi-
tion he accounted for nine of Michi-
gan's 22 points. He received six points
for winning in his division, and added
another three to the Maize and Blue
total by scoring three falls during
Johnson Wins Again
Captain Manley Johnson success-
fully defended his 145-pound title by
gaining two decisions and two pins
which were good for eight points.
Frank Ruggieri, heavyweight from
Purdue, was the only other matman
to retain his crown. .
Coach Ray Courtright who, in his
first year as Varsity wrestling mentor
brought a second place to the Wolver-
ines, was Well satisfied with the
showing of the team. It was Chet
Robbins, Hoosier 136-pounder ineligi-
ble until the Conference meet, who
upset the dope sheet by taking, the
championship in his weight class,
thus giving the darkhorse Indiana
squad six .points-the margin of vic-
tory over Michigan.
Coach Is Pleased
"Corky" was especially pleased with
the wrestling of his two new men-
Mort Klein and Chip Warrick. Each
scored a point for the Maize and.

consolation round to place third in
the meet, thus gaining the Varsity's
final two points.

Wolverines would receive their letters
this month. This is the first time in
the history of Michigan that track
letters have been awarded before the
end of the spring semester. The
plan was adopted because some of
the cindermen will not be here in
May. Others who failed to make an

to do so during the outdoor campaign.

By JOE McHALE
When Michigan came in second to
Ohio State last week-end in the Big
Ten swimming meet, it marked the
first year since 1928 that Michigan
has failed to get Intercollegiate A.A.
gold medals for a first in either the
Big Ten or Collegiate meet.
The Wolverines lost by the slender
margin of five points, such a slim
one that just a couple tenths of a
second would have thrown the whole
affair in the other direction. There
are many circumstances that could
have turned the trick.
Fries Stays Home
In the first place, Charlie Fries was
in the Health Service with pneu-
monia. His presence alone would
have given the Maize and Blue its
fifth straight title, for he was a cer-
tainty for a second in the 50-yard
sprint and a third in the century.
Secondly, Ace Cory, though he
made the trip, was too sick to com-
pete in both the 100-yard freestyle
and the relay. He was needed. most
urgently for the latter, so the loss of
his third or fourth in the 100 was felt.
Also, the close races were all
marked with Scarlet and Gray, for
Ohio State seemed to get all the
"breaks." Keo Nakama, the great
little Buckeye who, with Captain
,Mark Follansbee, probably did more
for Ohio than the whole rest of the
team, just beat Jack Patten of Mich-
igan in the 220. Patten had done a
second faster than Nakama's winning
time in the past, but he just couldn't
beat the inspired Hawaiian Friday.
Weal Stewart, fighting Michigan
quarter-miler who had beaten out
Buck Jack Ryan twice previously this
year, once again chalked up the fast-
est time of his life, only to lose by
less than six inches to Ryan in the
race for third behind the flying
Nakama. Wolverine Johnny McCar-

Babe Dahlgren and Dolph Camilli's
hint that he might stick to ranching,
were disclosed today.
Camilli is returning to the Dodger's
fold. The slugging first sacker wired
Rickey today that he, Camilli, had
found help to work his ranch; that
his wife had agreed to come East,
and that with Rickey's permission he
would leave the west coast April 2,
arriving here April 5.
The most disappointed Michigan-
der was record-breaker Harry Holi-
day, who lost to an aroused Follans-
bee in the preliminaries of the 100-
yard freestyle. Harry, all of a sud-
den, had his arms seem to go dead on
him, and he swam his slowest com-
petitive century of the year.
Too, Irvie Einbinder tired himself
out too much in his very fast first
150 yards in the breaststroke, and
his great effort netted him, and
Michigan, only a fourth in the event
besides Jim Skinner's first.
In all, Michigan won six out of the
